Fabulous and worth it!

Awesome scenery; lovely, informative cruise; peaceful; full of bird songs; the crater lakes were amazing. The story is amazing. The staff are lovely - we wandered up after the cruise, not taking the first bus back. We wandered around for hours, enjoyed a picnic, went up the hiking trail. I think the bus driver was relieved that we finally caught up with him at one of the designated stops on the last bus.
